Evolution, Ecology & Population Biology

Evolution, Ecology & Population Biology (EEPB) focuses on the evolutionary origins of organisms, their adaption to changing habitats, and the dynamics of interacting populations of species. Combining field study with molecular genetics, large-scale genomics, and quantitative genetics, EEPB aims to understand the evolution and ecology of populations, species, and communities

Areas of Focus

evolution of animal behavior · environmental fluctuations · sensory processing · genomic evolution · developmental & morphological evolution · plant & soil-borne symbiont interactions · biodiversity · genetic variation · host-parasite interactions · cooperation and altruism · plant evolution
